It was stated in a Malaysian press that Malaysia Airlines (MAS) had obtained 5 additional landing rights into NRT. This would enable MAS to operate twice daily to NRT from KUL. However, it was not stated when will MAS utilize this rights. For the time being, MAS is still flying 9 times a week to NRT, under the Winter 2001/2002 schedules. Hopefully, they can get a daily KUL-NRT-LAX v.v services, otherwise, they are going to have some pretty awful schedules even with the twice daily frequencies.
